    my *easy install* of the TC Bros mid controls (pretty nice btw)
    i had to remove the exhaust and i broke a stud....the hardest to reach one *DEEP FN BREATH*
    tried to weld a nut on. nope. 3 tries. nope.




    to drill it out. i had to remove chain. left side controls. all mounts. your sister. just to slide it over enough to drill straight.

    nice better fitting wires. sanded edge of coil off to not touch the motor. and enough space to still use the key.


    lowbrows said this would fit my bike. it looks like garbage. doesnt line up right. cut weird.

    Watch the oil bag, on the 92 the way the battery tray is mounted to the bag and the weight of the battery tends to crack the tank, my son has a 92 and we had a mystery oil leak, turns out it was the bag and after researching, this is a common problem with this year, we purchased a replacement from lowbrow, fit and finish were on the money, also went with a lithium battery to remove the battery weight from the flawed design.

    awesome. thank you sir. i will check it out.
    i do have an Antigravity battery on the shelf. im not sure if the old school charging setup will blow out this battery. i had a 77 kz750 with antigravity battery it ballooned the battery. newer bikes they say work better but idk why.

    My 1988 FLHT has an Antigravity battery and Ive had 0 issues, we went with the featherweight lithium battery for my sons 92 because the dimensions were very close to the stock battery, click the link https://www.denniskirk.com/fire-powe...rd/2011123.sku

    i will have to give the lithium battery a try. i appreciate it kind sir.

    the gun bluing is a bit of a process for big pieces.
    torch to heat it up to really soak it in. cant dip them because pieces are too big and solution is so small in volume.
    rear fender needs more.
    chopped tailight portion off. from lowbrows


    low brows frisco tank. came rusted out inside pretty good. customer service told me to pound sand.


    1/4" NPT plugs


    tank bluing. marbley color. i like it. you may not. i will add more bluing later to get a darker color and preserve the metal.

    thought i had wiring right. im sure i do.
    thought i had timing right, it fights me with the test light. on all the time.
    come to find this broken. vacuum leak.




    tac'd it. works find now. plus they are $100 for one..
    however the 1/4 junk petcock from lowbrows i dont think feeds enough fuel.
